Biochemical engineer with M. Sc. and Ph. D.  studies in chemistry-biology sciences, interested in studying  the elimination of organic and inorganic contaminants through physicochemical and microbiological processes. In particular, the research has focused in recent years on the use of animal or vegetable waste as adsorbent materials of organic and inorganic contaminants or as support materials to favor the biodegradation of the white pollutant. Secondary contamination generated during the previous processes is treated by biological processes in which the microbiota bioprospecting stage capable of carrying out the required degradation is of vital importance, as well as the evaluation of its population dynamics. In addition to this, the enzymatic characterization involved in biodegradation is of interest for the proposal of biodegradation pathways for compounds, this given in systems by batch or bioreactors at laboratory scale.

The so-called emerging pollutants, which in some cases are also classified as endocrine disruptors require attention in their treatment since some of them have been detected in deep waters contaminating the available water resource.

Personal Researchs Interest
  1. Biodegradation of organic pollutants (petroleum hydrocarbons, dyes, drugs, pesticides), biostabilization of metals.
  2. Identification or monitoring of population dynamics through genetic sequencing.
  3. Use of agroindustrial waste in the improvement of the removal and / or biodegradation of white pollutants
